$1M verdict for a mother who lost her son because the doctor failed to perform available testing when she came in a few days before the scheduled delivery concerned that her baby was not moving as much anymore. The doctor ignored her concerns and sent her home, telling her to come back the next day. It turned out the baby had the cord wrapped around his neck and he died before the testing was done the next day.
